Vol. 3 



INTRODUCTION. 

It will be useful to those who have not had much experience 
in early genealogical records to state briefly what was the 
nature of the Inquisitiones Post Mortem printed in this 
volume in brief abstract, and thus to show wherein lies their 
utility to us when compiling pedigrees, or when writing a 
parish history. These inquests must not be confused with 
the inquests still held before the Coroner for the purpose of 
ascertaining the cause of death, or the cause of a fire. 
These Inquisitiones Post Mortem resulted from the feudal 
system in England ; they are extant from the reign of 
Henry III, and continued to be held till the seventeenth 
century, being only formally abolished on the accession of 
Charles II to the throne in 1660, though they had ceased 
to be taken after 1640, or thereabouts. 

As calendars of the earlier Inquisitions have been issued 
by the Commissioners of Public Records, it has been thought 
advisable to begin the present series of Nottinghamshire 
abstracts at the first year of Henry VII, (1485), a period 
at which they become more generally useful to the working 
genealogist. 

When any person died seized of lands held in chief, in 
capite, that is, Leld directly from the Crown, a writ was 



vi 



Introduction, 



issued to the escheator of the county, directing that an 
inquiry or inquest should be held, in order to ascertain the 
following facts : — 

1. Of what lands he died seized. 

2. Of whom and by what services the same were held. 

3. When he died. 

4. Who was his next heir. 

5. What was the heir's age. 

If the heir happened to be a minor the lands descending 
to him were held in ward by the Crown till he came of age. 
This wardship of the infant heir was treated as a matter of 
profit by the Crown, and it was customary to grant it out, no 
doubt as a rule for valuable consideration, to private indi- 
viduals, who then took charge of the heir and his property 
till he came of age. This charge also conferred the right 
to find a suitable spouse for the heir. 

On the heir attaining his majority he had to sue out his 
" ousterlemain " ; in other words, he had to obtain delivery 
from the Crown of the lands for which he was in ward, after 
first proving to the Court's satisfaction that he was of age. 

As may be expected, payments of a very exacting nature 
were extorted on all these occasions of death, proof of age, 
and livery of lands. 

It will be seen, therefore, from the above brief outline, 
that Inquisitiones Post Mortem are very useful to genealo- 
gists of the present day, because in them are recorded the 
most minute particulars of the deceased's landed property ; 
names of manors long since passed out of existence; field 
names ; names of tenants, etc., etc., are often given, like- 
wise many interesting details as to the services by which 
the property was held. The date of the deceased's death, 
the heir's name, relationship, and age at time of his pre- 
decessor's death are all stated on the oath of twelve men 
appointed as a jury. Sometimes imperfections in the return 
made by the escheator and the jurors led to a further or 
supplementary inquest, which was held in pursuance of a

writ called a writ of ad melius inquirendum ; and occasionally 
this process had to be repeated. 

As an instance of the value these Inquisitions may prove 
to the local historian, that taken on the death of Matilda 
Willoughby, abstracted on page -i8, may be mentioned. 
Taken in 1498, it recites a family settlement executed nearly 
150 years before, and records a pedigree relating to several 
famous Nottinghamshire families, containing no less than 
eight generations, as will be seen from the appended tabular 
pedigree, which is wholly compiled from this Inquisition : —

It should be remarked that in 1806 it was ordered by 
Parliament that a calendar be printed of the Inquisitions 
then kept in the Tower of London, but since that date 
deposited in the Public Record Office. The outcome of this 
order was that between 1806 and 1828 four large folio 
calendars were printed under the directions of the Commis- 
sioners of Public Records, covering the period from Henry III

to that of Richard III, which volumes may be consulted 
in some of the Public Libraries in the kingdom. A set 
is preserved in Bromley House Library, Nottingham, which 
any person is entitled to consult, whether he be a member of 
that Library or no. This privilege, it may be worth while 
reminding the reader, also attaches to various other Record 
publications deposited in that Library. 

These four volumes supply the names of the persons on 
whose properties the Inquisitions were held, and the names 
of the manors, etc., and the counties in which they are 
situated, but fail to give any further information. They 
have the advantage of copious indexes, both to persons and 
places. The English abstracts in the present volume have 
been prepared by Mr. A. F. Heintz. The index was com- 
piled by Mr. F. W. Neale, to whom the thanks of the 
members are due for the trouble he has taken in supplying 
so useful an addition to the volume. 

It may be hoped that later on abstracts of the remainder 
of these documents, so invaluable to the genealogist and 
topographer, may be given to the members of the Thoroton 
Society.

[Note. — This inquisition it will be observed belongs to the reign of King 
Edward iv but appears amongst those of King Henry vij, doubtless by reason of 
the fact that eleven years later, as shown by the next document, it was found 
necessary to hold another inquest for the purpose of correcting the name of 
Isabella's heir. — Editor.]

copy there are the same errors and some additional ones. The above transla- 
tion is the best that can be made. Of the premises, namely, 4 messuages, 4 
tofts, 1 cottage, 1S0 acres, the various totals make up 4 messuages, 4 tofts, 1 
cottage, 1 croft and 204 acres. It may be observed that the last-mentioned 
messuage is held under 4 different lords, namely, the King, Earl of Shrewsbury, 
John Hercy and the heir of Cresy.]

lands held of the King in chief, and they were taken in order to 
determine w T hat feudal rights accrued to the Crown on the death of

Incidentally much more information is often given of great local 
value. These inquisitions ceased to be taken in 1645. 

The originals are in Latin, often not easy to decipher, so that
